Why The North American Aerospace Defense Command Tracks Santa

Santa Claus (Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, Père Noël, or Papa Noel) is busy delivering presents to children worldwide. It is nice to know that the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) tracks his every move and knows exactly when he enters North American airspace. They do this using a globally integrated system of radar and satellites that tracks everything that flies in and around the United States.
